Penny Draper, commonly known as the Disaster Queen, is a bookseller by day, an author by night and a storyteller all of the time. Her books are about disasters - rockslides, tsunamis, tornadoes, storms and shipwrecks - so there is plenty of mayhem and destruction. But there are also heroes. What would YOU do if your whole world suddenly changed?

Penny was born in a suburb of Toronto and now lives by the sea in Victoria, BC. She loves to travel, and is somehow able to find disaster wherever she goes.

I'm really glad you liked Ice Storm. It's one of my favourites too, mostly because ONE of the girls is a lot like me. But you'll have to guess which one! No, at this point I'm not planning a sequel. The ice storm was a really important turning point in Alice and Sophie's lives. They're different people now, and they need time to adjust. If I were ever to write about them again, it would probably be about their lives as adults, looking back on the ice storm and how it changed them. I don't want to throw them into another adventure just yet!(less)

All the stories are about teens in the performing arts, like music, dance and theatre, and the challenges they face. My story will be about a male ballet dancer, and since my own son was a professional dancer with Dancemakers in Toronto, it's a perfect fit! And there's another disaster book in the works as well. Any guesses as to what kind of disaster might be next?(less)
